BACKGROUND Because duplex ultrasonography is used increasingly to evaluate patients suspected of having acute deep venous thrombosis of the lower extremity, the clinical significance of limiting venous duplex scanning to the common femoral, superficial femoral, and popliteal veins becomes an important question. METHODS We prospectively studied by venous color flow duplex ultrasonography 181 patients referred for evaluation to rule out acute deep venous thrombosis to determine (1) the… CONTINUE READING
